	But - of course, I use the mechanism that is recommended on the
web-site, and that is tested by most of our beginners, and is known to
work well ;-) [ ie. build/libreoffice-* ] - and yes it is deadly

	The screwed up situation of having these two places to build, two
different conflicting makefiles with different rules etc. needs to be
cleared up ASAP - post the branch / freeze over the weekend, this needs
to be one of the first things we fix I think.

	Hopefully the situation will not persist indefinitaely, since it works
for me without problems, I'd personally recommend the web-site page
approach :-) manifestly it has only four simple steps: autogen,
download, make, bin/ooinstall ...
